de Kooning: An American Master.

New York: Knopf, 2004. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a touch of sunning to the spine. Willem de Kooning is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, a true “painter’s painter” whose work continues to inspire many artists. In the thirties and forties, along with Arshile Gorky and Jackson Pollock, he became a key figure in the revolutionary American movement of abstract expressionism. Of all the painters in that group, he worked the longest and was the most prolific, creating powerful, startling images well into the 1980s. The first major biography of de Kooning captures both the life and work of this complex, romantic figure in American culture. This is an authoritative and brilliant exploration of the art, life, and world of an American master. Item #26329
